It’s fair to say we live in a sleep-deprived culture. We all know people who wear their sleep deprivation as a “badge of honor” which seems so silly when you think about it. Sadly, the consequences of poor sleep take a huge toll on our health. Sleeplessness directly affects our health, mood, motivation, appetite, weight, and more. I recently participated in a webinar series called Smarts and Stamina with MJ Shaar. It motivated me to change my work schedule to allow for more sleep in the morning hours…because I just can’t seem to get to bed early. So far, I love it! It’s amazing what 45 extra minutes of sleep does for my body and soul. Since sleep affects so many other parts of our health, it makes sense to try some simple things to create better sleep.
